A teenager named Zach Montana uncovered a long-held family secret: his dad wrote and sang an awesome song that he never released. Zach loved the song so much he made a video in his car playing it and posted it to TikTok. It now has 3.2 million views. So we invited Zach and his dad Curly Smith to tell us their story and to perform the song “Surrender to Me” with their band Fire City Funk.

    The kids acting is indicating that this is probably a hoax.

    I’d love to see this song chart high as a symbol of people getting a second chance at success. Long live the underdogs

    This whole thing comes off as contrived. It appears preboxed and ready to go. The song itself is just OK at best. Sincerity level at zero.
